Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry is clearly not resting on his laurels after capturing the number 4 ring and putting together an incredible NBA Finals along the way. Whether it’s working out in the gym or hitting the hardwood floors, the 34-year-old is doing his best to ensure that he returns to elite form into the season. next.
Even when Curry takes time off, he still finds a way to get his job done. Such was the case this week when the 8-time All-Star hosted his annual Curry Camp at the San Francisco Olympic Club.
Sure enough, he’s there to teach the tricks of the trade to an elite group of 26 high school players. But that doesn’t stop him from taking part in some races either. In doing so, he was joined by a pair of NBA-level talent.
Specifically, current Veteran/Freedom agent Kent Bazemore and longtime scorer Brandon Jennings who are helping Steph teach campers. On Thursday, Curry posted video footage of “OGs” in action via Twitter (embedded below).
Some old stories
Bazemore, of course, was a member of the Warriors from 2012 to 2014 and then again in the team’s woeful 2020-21 campaign. However, after the team lost a spot the following season, he joined the LA Lakers (and took a pay cut, no less) for what he saw as a better chance to win the title.
It was a move he later regretted, tweeting that he is sick” on how things turned out in the end for the respective teams.
For now, the 33-year-old is still looking for a new basketball home after a particularly difficult experience at La La Land last season. Some even offered him as a pick for Dubs’ final roster spot.
Jennings, meanwhile, was once considered one of the Association’s most electric backcourt performers. He had a 55-point game in his rookie campaign against the Milwaukee Bucks back in 2009-10. And at the height of his power two years later (with the same team), he averaged 19.1 points, 5.5 assists and 3.4 rebounds per game.
Since then, however, he has played around the league and struggled to maintain impact as he deals with the aftermath of the Achilles rupture, as well as personal issues.
Still just 32 years old, Jennings last got a taste of senior professional football during the 2018-19 season with Zenit Saint Petersburg of the VTB League and the EuroLeague.

Steph promotes gender equality at camp
For the first time, there was an equal distribution of girls and boys at Curry’s elite camp. As picked up by the San Francisco Chronicle, the Dubs legend is looking to make the game (and himself) more accessible to everyone.
“We’re just trying to normalize that basketball is basketball,” Curry said. “My hope is to give the girls going through the ranks something to look forward to, to be a part of this experience and to have access to me and our team and the others. what we do.”
He added: “Also, for guys, give them perspective that it’s not just them who are hooping. Girls can do this too. And they should encourage, celebrate and support it. And hopefully that will carry throughout their careers as well. “
Steph’s three-day camp includes dinner at a restaurant co-founded by Ayesha Curry, a tour of the Chase Center, and a night of bowling, in addition to the best round of tutoring one could dream of.
